Bug Description

[Impact]

The isc-dhcp-client package is pulled in as part of ubuntu-minimal. On systems where ubuntu-minimal is not installed (like on certain chroots), the walinuxagent package fails to install as the maintainer scripts implicitly require /etc/dhcp/dhclient.conf to exist.

sed: can't read /etc/dhcp/dhclient.conf: No such file or directory

[Test Case]

Install the package with the added dependency on a system without isc-dhcp-client installed and check if it installs correctly.

[Regression Potential]

There should be no regression potential with this change as the new dependency is present on all everyday Ubuntu systems and azure images. Currently the package is used only on ubuntu-minimal environments so everything works as expected - the addition of this package only makes it now possible to install on systems without ubuntu-minimal installed.

I have tested all the versions from -proposed (2.2.6-0ubuntu1~16.10.1, 2.2.6-0ubuntu1~16.04.1, 2.2.6-0ubuntu1~14.04.1) and they all install correctly on clean chroots (tested using ptest). No package installation errors, dependencies pulled in as expected.

  * debian/control:
    - Change the maintainer to Ubuntu Developers (LP: #1657528).
    - Add the dependency of isc-dhcp-client as our maintainer scripts assume
      it's installed (LP: #1673862).

      the 'command' command instead to make lintian happy.
  * Remove debian/patches/disable-auto-update.patch:
    - We now ship with auto-updates enabled (LP: #1650522).
  * debian/maintscript:
    - Add a maintscript to rename the old logrotate file on upgrade from an
      ancient version of walinuxagent (LP: #1673152).
